Forum rules


Listings acceptable to post in this section are Caprice PPV's for sale by individuals, government entities (I.E. direct sale/auction/sealed bids), and the occasional car for sale on dealer lots (trade-in's for example) that do not normally sell Caprices. EBAY/Craigslist/auction site ads are OK for the above as well. Please do not post third party ads for cars on behalf of dealers that routinely sell used PPV's as part of their primary business. If you post a car for sale, please add the word "SOLD" in the header after the car sells as a courtesy to other members. Listings by members with under five forum posts may be removed without notice. Please check with a moderator if you have questions.

Very little body damage, but all the bags are blown. What in the world?

Looks like it slid sideways into a curb.

I wouldn't think that would blow all the bags. But then again I don't know much.

Looks like only two of the possible 10 air bags deployed. (Side Thorax driver and passenger). If I had to guess, car got damage to the frame and or under body to total the car. Not likely that a bent rim would caused the bags to deploy. But those bags are probably very expensive when they do. Seats rip and probably need to be replaced as an assembly.

Both sides of the side bags are blown, pass side also it looks like. Does that happen by underbody damage? 27 years in the FD don't see that with underbody damage usually.

I am very interested in this one but in this particular auction you apparently have to have a dealers license. Has anyone dealt with a broker going through Copart?
